Previously offered only as diplomatic gifts from Nicaraguan ambassadors, and later at special Joya de Nicaragua events, the company’s sought-after Número Uno blend is now slated for a global release later this year.

Número Uno joins Joya de Nicaragua’s Cuatro Cinco and Cinco Décadas cigars, together combining to form what is now known as the Obras Maestras series (translating to mean Masterpieces).

Número Uno was developed as a unique gift and later an event-exclusive cigar, and although it wasn’t the original intention, we decided to make Número Uno available to a bigger audience. However it will remain as something exclusive, as production will be limited to 1,500 boxes a year for the global market and will be available only in selected retailers around the globe.Dr. Alejandro Martínez Cuenca, Chairman of Joya de Nicaragua

Of the three cigars in the Obras Maestras series, Número Uno is the most mild, focusing primarily on nuance and refinement. This is achieved through the use of an Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper and all-Nicaraguan fillers, showcasing an overall medium body and strength.

Despite becoming more widely available this year, the cigars remain more limited than the Cuatro Cinco and Cinco Décadas, as JDN has rolled the blend in a singular size (6⅝” x 44) and plans to offer only 1,500 boxes each year.

Número Uno is priced at $15 MSRP, with the cigars being available exclusively to Drew Diplomat-authorized retailers in the U.S. The cigars will debut next week at the 2019 IPCPR trade show in Las Vegas, followed by a showing at Intertabac in Germany this September. Consumers can expect to begin seeing Número Uno cigars early this fall.

We will start shipping to stores early this fall, production is slower than in other products as only a selected group of very skilled rollers are assigned to this project.Juan Ignacio Martínez, executive president, Joya de Nicaragua
